Okay, on to the cake...
Cristina had shown me a picture of a cake that she liked with pastel green, pink and yellow polka dots, a bow, and some baby booties on top. She also wanted Ava's name on it, so I took it as inspiration and put my own ideas to work.
I started by making the baby mary janes so that they had time to dry for a few days. I used a template found on Cake Central from member PDXSweetTreats. Pretty simple to make and they look so cute!
Here is the whole finished cake! I was actually happy with how (most of) this came out!
The top tier was chocolate cake with whipped ganache filling, covered in ganache. The bottom tier was white cake with strawberries and cream filling, iced with buttercream. Then the whole cake was covered in a pale pastel green fondant. I added all the dots and decorations and the ribbon borders and was done. I'm thrilled to say the Mom-to-be loved it! Look at her glow!
CONGRATULATIONS CRISTINA AND JOHN!
CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOUR NEW BUNDLE OF JOY!!!
